Printable Alphabet Play dough Mats

We had so much fun playing with our Alphabet Play Dough!  It is a fun activity to help kids learn their alphabet letters and build up their fine motor skills at the same time.


This activity involves using play dough to create letters in the alphabet, using the Printable Alphabet Play Dough Mats as a guide.


What you will need?


You will need a blob of play dough, Printable Alphabet Play Dough Mats and a play dough safe knife.

I have laminated the Alphabet Letter Mats to make them last longer.

Using play dough to make laphabet lettersactivities for eye and hand coordination


Miss 3 loved filling in the space of the letter with play dough.  This is fabulous for building concentration skills and eye and hand coordination.


Learning Opportunities: 

  • Spatial awareness – experimenting with shape and space
  • Eye and hand coordination
  • Fine motor development
  • Recognition of letter names/sounds and letter shapes.

    The link only has cursive. I really love the regular ones. Can you send me the link to the ABC ones that are not cursive?
